Girls are like Apples on Trees

Field and tracks 2 by Demie Allen

“Girls are like apples…the best ones are at the top of the trees. The boys don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them, when, in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right boy to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree…”

  1. I’d like to think of it that way:

    The top apples, are bitter, unripe and generally untasty. They may look the best since they’re at the top, but getting all the way up there and having a taste is a huge dissapointment. So the best way is just to stand under the tree and catch the falling apples. You know THOSE are the best ones.

    But hey different strokes for different folks, am I right?

  2. Wait, why are the best apples at the top of the tree…? What is the difference between the apples in the middle to bottom of the tree? If I’m climbing a tree I’m probably gonna pick the first apple that looks good and taste it. The apples at the top shouldn’t be surprised that they are picked last.

    • It has nothing to do with me not being brave.Why would I put myself in unnecessary extra danger if I find a good apple halfway up the tree? I do feel bad for the apples at the top, they just grew at the top, it’s not like they can choose where they grow. Just like women. Some are born with the traits that put them at the “top of the tree”. Maybe they are too picky, don’t give the good guys enough of a chance, or put very little effort into finding someone other than putting on makeup and going about their daily life. If you are a woman stuck at the top of the tree, find a way to think outside the box rather than blaming the men. Maybe put yourself out their and try online dating or speed dating, ect. Maybe pay more attention to the shy guy rather than the exciting flashy player type. Just because you were born with the traits that put you at the top of the tree like the apple, you aren’t an apple! You can change. An apple is stuck where it is or it rots, you aren’t stuck. Don’t rot away, make that change.
